weekend update

Maggie had a bad day of it yesterday. She was fluffed out and howling at the vet's when I picked her up. When she stepped out of the carrier, she had urinated in it ... poor kitty. Her tail was soaked. She continued howling as I settled her in (and tried drying her off). She calmed down a bit after she got some food and I left the room. I think she likes letting me know she is annoyed.

She is, at the moment, resting more or less comfortably. I go in, make sure she is breathing ok, pet her, continue with my housework. The vet gave some pain pills and (to quote cat_herder) I managed to get one down her pie hole. I have worked on keeping Maya and Maggie seperated today; I think Maya would take advantage. I am supposed to try to keep Maggie from jumping for ten days; no problem today, but could be tricky in a week when she starts feeling more herself again.

I think I'll try washing her tail while she is still relatively immobile, though ... probably tomorrow, as I have a pedicure scheduled for early evening and probably won't want to fuss with medicine and wash tonight. I woke up at three and only got a little sleep after that. (Went in and checked on Maggie, then couldn't sleep and went through my bills.)

Well, if you feel tired, there is nothing like sleeping with a little kitty on your tummy.

I suspect she will wash her own tail, so I would not fret about the tail thing at all. Just focus on getting her her meds and the rest will take care of that.
